Sports journalist found safe after going missing in Houston

Her roommate later said he and Roland planned to meet later Sunday, but he told KPRC he didn't hear from her again. Houston police officials confirmed that a missing person's report was filed in Roland's case, but they have said little else.

Ms Rolan was last seen leaving a football camp in Houston, Texas at about 4pm on Saturday, local time, ABC 13 reports. Roland's Jeep Cherokee was found close to the mall just after midnight on Monday.

On Sunday, Roland's mother received a text from her phone saying, "hello the owner of this phone Courtney".

Earlier Monday, Houston Police had tweeted that Roland's vehicle had been found in a parking lot, and her purse was located at a nearby business. She appears unharmed. She'll be taken to an area hospital for an evaluation.

No further information was released.

KPRC reported that Roland texted her roommate about a suspicious man she saw in a Walgreens who followed her to home in a blue truck.

Family and friends reported Roland missing at the weekend.

Cruz said she appeared to have spent much of her time searching for her phone, which was found in the Jeep along with other personal items. The roommate said the blue truck looped back around and parked behind her and Roland got out of her auto and the truck sped off.

A message left on her phone was not immediately returned. Roland and her roommate meant to meet up later that day, but she never appeared.
